About Nelson

Lab / Great Dane
Age: Puppy
Sex: Male

Nelson is a young male lab mix, a little over a year old. He is a friendly, playful, energetic, and happy boy. He is fully potty-trained and knows his basic commands. Nelson needs a home with an active person or family with a fenced yard who is looking for a dog to walk and play with. Nelson enjoys playing fetch, chewing on bones, going for walks, looking out the window, getting belly rubs, and being with people. He is eager to please and a quick learner. When Nelson was a stray, he sustained a serious eye injury that left him blind in his right eye and in pain. Shortly after Nelson was rescued by AHF, his eye was surgically removed. He is now fully healed and pain-free. He sees very well out of his left eye and does not require any special treatment. He is healthy and acts no differently than a two-eyed dog. Although Nelson is friendly toward people of all ages, he is probably best in a home without very small children because he could accidentally knock them down. He likes playing with other dogs who are friendly toward him. He is protective of his food around other dogs, however, so if he goes to a home with another dog, special care will need to be taken at feeding time. No cats for Nelson. Nelson is a sweet, silly, lovable boy who will make a great forever dog for an active person or family with a fenced yard.
